My first time meeting John & Rachel I knew that it was meant to be… for them AND for me as their photographer. We met up at Rise in Carrboro, NC and indulged in the most amazing biscuits and donuts in the region. It was messy and delicious and I KNEW that we would become […]

What a summer! It’s been a serious adventure and boy have we gone places. Enjoy my favorites from Summer 2016’s photo adventures throughout the Blue Ridge and NC High Country. [pp_gallery id=”4137″ style-id=”9c31be11-cc97-4997-893f-6c2159861b70″]   

I started out in life as a film photographer. I STILL shoot film on occasion. Film photography forces you to analyze light within an image in detail both in the field and in the darkroom. Last Saturday while at Linville Wilderness Gorge, we decided to play with light as you might do in a darkroom […]

Linville Gorge is amazing in its own right, and this past weekend I had the opportunity to see it from a new perspective.  I’ve always been a stargazer; however, we live in a world filled with artificial light. Growing up next to a big city, you get tons of light pollution and as a kid […]

I’m not usually a gearhead, but recently I decided to try out some new lens filters. My goal here was to attempt to capture more precisely what I saw through my lens. I felt like I couldn’t quite get the contrast and saturation that I saw when I looked through my viewfinder, or my exposures […]

The High Country of NC is full of exciting adventures and hidden treasures. One of these destinations is a place called Mystery Hill, which is located off of HWY 321 south out of Boone headed towards Blowing Rock and is on my daily commute. Like many other seasonally driven towns, Mystery Hill stands as a […]

Well that was a lot of snow! After moving to Boone just two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of experiencing a true snow storm this past weekend. At first I felt a bit speculative about going through such a cold adventure, but this weekend convinced me that I actually really like living in the […]

Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to participate in an Instagram project called RDU Baton(@rdubaton), which allows user to log into their account and post images of things that make the Triangle great and tell the stories of differing perspectives from the area. I got on the waiting list to hold the baton back […]

Yesterday I hiked one of NC’s newest parks–Elk Knob State Park in Meat Camp, NC. It was recently constructed as a preservation area for the elevation’s delicate habitat. The summit has both a north and south view and tops out at 5,520 feet. With lots of switchbacks and a 1.9 mile hike to the summit, […]

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking a little jaunt through the mountains just outside of Boone, NC. Moses H. Cone Manor Memorial Park is just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and about a 20 minute drive from downtown Boone. The hike is about 5 miles round trip from the parking […]
